The other day int 80h reached out to me to let me know that Cargo.lock is now part of the repository. I took this as an opportunity to upgrade to the latest version of `gemserv`. Unfortunately I couldn't completely avoid patching.
First my updated derivation:
I also removed the the Let's Encrypt setup and moved the certificates to a fixed location. My plan is to switch to a self signed certificate as soon as the old one expires. There is currently a still ongoing debate about best practices. I will see what I have to do when it's time to update. My configuration now looks like this:
When building this configuration I got "attributes are not yet allowed on `if` expressions" errors. I suspect that the rust compiler in NixOS stable (rustc-1.43.0) is not recent enough. The attribute in question is concerns the presence of the cgi option. Since I want to use cgi anyway I just removed the annotation. Hence, the patch is:
An alternative would be to use some overlay to get the latest rust compiler, but I'm not a big fan of adding third party repositories.
